When one door shuts---

-----another one opens---(enough with the cliches Doreen)
I decided that I wouldn't give up so easily in regards to the "Erosion Bundle Project" and after some suggestions from like minded people I have decided to create my own special piece of art.
Kris who is the creator of this project said to me that I should send her a photo of the table where the now defunct bag of treasures disappeared from.
Me being who I am thought "you can do better than a photo of a table can't you?"
So I decide to arrange some of my buttons on said table in an X shape to to say that this is the spot where the bag was.
Yep this looked ok - and then I thought that maybe I could use the photo edit program that I have on my computer and have a bit of a play around.






Does this look like someone running around like a headless chook?




Well I thought that wasn't what I wanted so I decided to frame the picture---looking better.



Then there was the embossed one--I like this one very much.





But here is my entry to the Erosion Bundle Project challenge--
Ladies and Gentlemen I give you ---
X Marks the Spot




I am impressed even if I do say so myself.

And you say I'm too clever for my own good - this would really be way out of my comfort zone - it's brilliant. Tried to comment on your previous post yesterday (or the day before in your world) but techy things wouldn't let me!!

Hi. I just love playing round with photos and the great effects you are able to get...I do like your headless man. I have made some interesting swirly pics with that.

I love it... Another quote (more cliches...) that I found lately - if you don't like something... change it. If you can't change it... change the way you look at it.... You are just changing the way you look at the situation and this is a much better view!!! turning a negative into a positive - Great work Doreen!!!

I'm just getting caught up and read about the demise of your erosion bundles - oh dear. I'm sure your hubby felt terrible. On the bright side though - you've done a marvelous job of making light of it and have created a great piece of art in it's place. Now there's nothing for it but to make some more bundles!

They all look good but I really like the embossed one and the one you decided to use in the frame. I bet hubby will never forget this incident!

WOW! What a fabulous 'something' out of a very unfortunate 'nothing'
Very creative I must say!
